About Me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I bring over 20 years experience as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS to the Kings Heath and Moseley Psychology Practice. I have extensive expertise in assessment and therapy with adults who have a range of psychological difficulties; clinical supervision; teaching and training, clinical and service leadership; and people and project management.

My therapy approaches include Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but I also specialise in interventions that integrate techniques from different models to suit individual clinical needs and preferences. I am also one of the most experienced therapists, trainers and supervisors in CAT in the West Midlands.

Kings Heath & Moseley Psychology Practice is founded on expertise and values of which I am proud. My focus is on providing clients with a welcoming and highly professional psychology and psychotherapy service. With affordability in mind, I have fixed fees and also offer some concessionary rates.

Deciding to come to therapy can be a daunting decision. I aim to offer a calm, safe place in which you will feel able to explore the difficulties you are experiencing. It is also a chance for us to see if we can develop a therapy relationship which feels positive and supportive. I have experience of working with a wide range of clients, including those struggling with anxiety and depression. My specialist areas of work include eating disorders, identity issues, psychological consequences of discrimination and interpersonal problems.

I have lived and worked in the West Midlands since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 1992. (This is such a long time ago that it was not yet a doctoral qualification and so I do not have the title Dr!) I have completed two years training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) as a Practitioner, and subsequently qualified as an accredited supervisor in CAT. I have over 20 years’ experience of clinical supervision with a range of psychological professionals, and mental health workers who are using psychological thinking to inform their work. I am passionate about helping other people to develop their skills and confidence in the application of psychological principles. I have been involved in developing Counselling, CAT, Eating Disorder and Personality Disorder services alongside managing, training and supervising staff working in them.

I have been a guest lecturer for the Birmingham Clinical Psychology Training Course and have delivered training on Eating Disorders and Discrimination and Diversity. Most recently, I have been offering training on Self Care and Psychologically Informed Environments. I am an Associate with St Basils, and work with Murray Hall Community Trust in Sandwell.

I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist with a long-standing commitment to social justice and broadening access to mental health services. Before training as a Clinical Psychologist, I worked in diverse settings including a benefits advice service, a day centre for people with mental health problems and a Rape Crisis Centre. During my time as a Clinical Psychologist I have spent many years developing a counselling service which combined generic services with specialist provision for those often socially excluded on the grounds of gender, race, religion and disability. My values are honesty, hopefulness, caring, integrity and optimism.

           Dedication

I set up Kings Heath and Moseley Psychology Practice in 2018 with my very dear colleague Bill Bell.  We had known each other for many years while both working in the NHS, and through our work in  CAT.  Having both left the NHS recently, we spent many hours talking about our values and what we wanted to get from working privately.  It was our shared values that led us to set up the Practice together and a sense that we would make a good team, complementing and supporting each other and bringing our own unique skills and interests.  

Very sadly, Bill passed away in June 2019.  I am so pleased that he lived long enough to see the website launched and that he was able to work with me to think through, in his careful and particular way, how to express who we were and what we had to offer.  And so it felt important to acknowledge him here, as the website was so very much a joint venture.
